Celadon City qualified for this recognition by showcasing its strategy and humanity in master planning which maximised land use to integrate nature and biodiversity with a multitude of modern-day conveniences.
The FIABCI World Prix d’Excellence Awards is one of the most prestigious international awards honouring projects that best embody excellence in the real estate industry. With a selection and judging panel comprised of internationally-renowned real estate professionals and experts, FIABCI World Prix d'Excellence rewards projects not just for aesthetics, functionality or size, but their overall merits.
The award is a milestone for Celadon City, marking it one of the rare projects in Vietnam to be honoured by FIABCI World Prix d'Excellence under the Master Plan category. This achievement once again underscores Celadon City’s competitiveness in the Vietnamese real estate market, as well as affirmed its position as a world-class township.
Celadon City, a sustainable township with completed master plan and fulfilled facilities
Wyeren Yap Vooi Soon, general director of Gamuda Land Ho Chi Minh City, said: “This award is the recognition of our efforts to harmoniously bring the development’s key elements together – architecture, facilities, amenities, nature, and most importantly, the community. The symphony of all these elements creates a thriving and sustainable township that has a strong sense of identity and belonging.”
Embracing the values of nature, Celadon City is built on a total area of 82 hectares with more than 16ha dedicated to lush parks. 6,000 trees in the town parks as well as three lakes provide residents the privilege to enjoy nature from anywhere in the property – whether in the corner of their balcony with a view of green spaces, a favorite spot in the park where they can walk and share memories with family, or the roads around the lake where they can take in the fresh air.

“Foremost in our town planning is to create a place where the community members will get to know one another and ultimately look out for each other,” said Wyeren Yap Vooi Soon. To promote social connections, the property includes international schools such as Maple Bear Kindergarten, The Asian International School, and ILA English Centre to provide children with a complete and modern educational system.
Hoan My Medical Centre is just next door, always ready to take care of residents’ health and medical issues. AEON Mall is currently the biggest shopping and entertainment destination in Ho Chi Minh City, while the luxurious Celadon Sports & Resort Club provides an international-standard complex for healthcare, entertainment, and relaxation.

Moreover, Gamuda Land is famous for its careful project design. The homes in Celadon City are assessed by the stringent quality benchmarking system GQUAS based on CONQUAS (Construction Quality Assessment System) developed by Singapore’s Building & Construction Authority and ISO 9001.
Likewise, Celadon City is strategically located in the centre of Tan Phu district – the gateway of west Saigon connecting all the key locations in the city as well as linking all thoroughfares and routes leading to provinces in the southwest and southeast.
In the upcoming months, Celadon City will also have Gamuda Boulevard, a tourist enclave which will have boutique shops, restaurants, and entertainment areas. This project is targeted towards bringing residents and visitors a shopping experience much like in Singapore’s famous shopping centre, Orchard Road.
Established in 1995, Gamuda Land is the property development arm of Gamuda Berhad, one of the leading engineering, construction, and infrastructure groups in Malaysia. Having entered Vietnam in 2007, Gamuda Land is currently investing in two urban lifestyle townships, Gamuda City in Hanoi and Celadon City in Ho Chi Minh City.
